Evil Never Dies:

He was called Evil-Eyed Emil. When he looked at people with his infamous right eye, so the story went, bad things invariably happened. Townspeople cringed and covered their faces as Emil came near, not daring to look directly into his ominous orb.

And, as he was being driven out of Reaper Junction on Halloween night exactly 100 years ago, Emil vowed to return one day to wreak his vengeance on the mob and its progeny for the way he had been so rudely tossed out.

‚ÄčThat cryptic curse was all but forgotten by today’s generation of Reapers who laughed at such nonsense. But, the laughter has stopped. For last night, shockingly and unexpectedly, a local resident staggered into the town square and announced that Emil had been sighted in the woods and, true to his century-old proclamation, someone had been the victim of Emil’s anger.

The deceased was Grimsby Graves, the patriarch of a family whose ancestors had helped found Reaper Junction in 1770. ‚ÄčThe Graves’ seemed to have had their fingers in every pie that was ever baked in Reaper Junction. The history books say that it was, in fact, the Graves brothers who had led the torch-lit mob that oversaw Emil’s abrupt exit into the stormy night.

So, how then can justice be done? How can someone who is already dead be brought to trial? And, can the court truly find a jury of his peers? Or, will the explanation be less scintillating and more sinister?

Quicker Than The Eye

He was a prestidigitator beyond compare. The Amazing Roberto Clappini built a reputation for performing card tricks that could deceive even the most well-trained eye. His latest trick was proclaimed to be one that would take the art of sleight of hand to a new level. The trick was always performed with cards manufactured by Svengesi’s Strong Suits, the Bulgarian company that is known worldwide for its outstanding product. Clappini swore by the cards’ quality and refused to consider using any other brand. Now, though, Svengesi’s renown has taken a hit – struck by the same blow that killed Clappini after last night’s performance at Finger Lake. But, authorities have a clue about the identity of the murderer, or to be more accurate, a handful of clues. For before he died, Clappini had the strength and wherewithal to pull several cards from the deck and attempt to tell authorities what happened. It would take skill and investigative expertise to identify the perpetrator of the crime – and to deal out a hand that could only be described as a “royal flush.”

The Plot Leading Up to Murder in Hulas and Homicide:

She was known as the Hula Honcho. Winnie Waheli was the head judge at the annual hula contest on Kikiwai Beach. Once regarded as the most-accomplished dancer in all of Hawaii, Winnie’s career abruptly ended two decades ago when one of her more strenuous moves produced a recurring medical problem that prevented her from ever competing again professionally.
That’s when she was hired by the Kikiwai Queen Hotel to organize and orchestrate the hula event. Each year, Winnie made a point of meeting the competitors and talking to the press, all the while ensuring that she was the center of attention.
Tonight would have been the night that Winnie and this year’s hula extravaganza would once again make headlines. But all is not well in paradise, for someone must have taken exception to Winnie’s overbearing antics. This morning, her lifeless body was found on the very beach where she had achieved both fame and fortune, the seeming victim of foul play.
Who would dare end the career of the maven of movement? Could someone have plotted the death of the darling of divatude? Or, was this just the result of a temper tantrum by a close associate? It would take a unique perspective and expert investigative skills to identify the guilty party.

The Plot Leading Up to Murder In
The Curse of the Comet!

It is September 17, 1945
A gathering occurred last night at Highview, the secluded Beverly Hills estate of movie star Maurice Mason and his wife, Dianna Darien – one that proved to be both intriguing and tragic. For, this morning, the body of Maurice’s twin brother, famed archaeologist Myron Mason, was found draped across the thorn bushes that grow in profusion around the grounds.

The death added a morbid punctuation to an event that had been conceived as a lark – a gathering to disprove an ancient curse. For, last night also, the comet Hopkay made its first appearance in the heavens in 400 years.
The celestial messenger was last seen the year that the native Central American leader, Hopkay, met an untimely demise. His people, the Intecs, interred him in a tomb which, they proclaimed, must be untouched for all time.

Yet, 10 years ago, Myron Mason found the tomb and robbed it of its treasures. An inscription on the wall of the crypt proclaimed that whoever desecrated the spot would be cursed. When the comet named after Hopkay reappeared in the heavens, the desecration would be revenged.

The motley group of attendees toasted the archaeologist as the comet entered the solar system. Was the curse a remnant of an ancient religion, or the uneducated ramblings of a primitive people? The answer would soon be apparent – and deadly obvious.

BCT’s Murder Mystery Troupe will present the interactive Murder Mystery

I Saw Mommy Killing Santa Claus

It’s Christmas time again and the toy department at Lacy’s is selling more merchandise than its chief competitor, Tidewater’s Toys. The main reason for this explosion of sales is Elmer Ellsworth, Lacy’s holiday Santa Claus.

Before Elmer was hired for last year’s Christmas season, Lacy’s toy receipts were so bad that the store was ready to stop selling toys altogether. Now, business is booming because Elmer makes Santa come alive to young and old alike. In a daily ritual, kids hug Santa and mothers give him kisses as photos are taken for Christmas albums.

But, in the midst of parents and children lined up to tell the jolly ol’ elf all about their wish lists, Elmer stands up, utters a faint, “ho, ho, ho,” and falls to the floor in front of his chair. He is dead. Someone has done in the department store Santa before he could grant everyone’s wishes.

Who would put the ice on the iconic idol? What could Santa have done to elicit such a raucous response? And, how would the authorities go about determining what happened to the holiday mirthmaker? It would require a team of seasonal sleuths to lambaste the lies and come up with a killer.
